Tombow Air Press 0.7
I won this puppy in a Pen Addict giveaway some time ago. I call it my astronaut pen (hence the stars and planets and rockets and me in an astronaut suit), but I haven't actually found anything that says it will work in outer space. I don't see why it wouldn't, since it claims to work at "extreme" angles, on wet paper, in the cold, etc. I can't actually test for myself whether it will work in space. I've never been there. But look at it! It's so cool, with it's clear body and the red and the black and the silver. I can totally see it clipped to an astronaut suit.
The reason it works in extreme conditions, according to JetPens, is its pressurized insides. When you click the pen, it builds up pressure inside the pen, allowing it to write almost everywhere. I've tried it on wet paper and inside my freezer, and had no problems in either case.
I also like this pen because it's short and compact. It's about 5 inches long and 3/4 of an inch wide.
